People’s Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has claimed that there is only one situation in which he’d accept defeat in the forthcoming elections.

The former vice-president was speaking on ‘The Candidates’, a political TV show aired on NTA and sponsored by the McArthur Foundation.

When asked if he would accept defeat, the businessman said that he would accept defeat if the elections are adjudged free, fair and credible.

With the elections coming so soon, many individuals worry about the potential fallout of the elections and the possibility of candidates getting violent or problematic.

Atiku said that he would not cause any trouble as long as he deems the elections credible.

The politician also claimed that he is the most investigated candidate to ever run for office and that even with that he has still not been convicted of any wrongdoing.

He also stated that even his current ally Chief Olusegun Obasanjo also accused him of corruption but that it all came to nought.

Obasanjo has now lent his backing to his former subordinate, stating that while he was a man not without his faults, at least he was the best of the candidates on display for the Presidency right now.
